Possible: If there is blood in the mouth and they spit in your eye, there is possibility to develop hiv, if they are infected.

No: I'm sorry people are like that. The risk is zero. In the old days, family contacts of HIV-positive patients just didn't get infected except by sex or doing needle drugs. You can't go through life as a grown man letting this kind of thing trouble you. Worrying like this is like worrying about causing pregnancy by sharing a dip in a pool or a bar of soap. Don't be a slave to such fears. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

This nothing to worry about at all. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
